How does the contoured heal compare to having the standard rout? Does it lat you play faster? Do you think it's really worth it to get the contour?

Well, it's definitely noticeable when you're playing.  A bit thinner.  I think it's an improvement over a real Fender's heel.  I've got it on 2 of my 3 Warmoths.

I own a strat and a Warmoth LP. I don't notice much difference. It could be because the LP doesn't have a top cutaway so that makes it a little harder to get to the higher frets. So one thing sort of cancels out the other. I bet on a strat or similar the contour would be more notifiable to me. I bet if the LP didn't have it, it would really stand out. Anyway that that doesn't really help hahaha. Well I like my strat just fine how it is, but I guess if I was doing a Warmoth strat I'd get the contour.
